Won't go into drive but will drive in reverse in 1989 jaguar xj6

I just bought a 1989 jaguar xj6 with the 3.6.The car won't go forward in drive but will drive in reverse.Everytime I put the car in drive,2,3,or whatever it just won't go anywhere.The engine will rev up but that is about it.Do I need a new tranny,or is it something cheaper that I can fix? Please help.Also am having a hard time figuring out what the right transmission for my car would be, if it is needed.

1988 Jaguar xj6 No forward in the automatic trans rev works fine


the linkage is just a slight bit off, it parks between gears when you shift into the slots. Disassemble the shifter from the center console, and slowly move just the cable its self between the positions and see if you have forword gears. When you find and sync the gears, then tighten the cable to the shifter so the positions match the notches in the shifter.
